Prominent A-List Talent Agent Acquires Johnny Galecki's Illustrious Hollywood Hills Estate

In a fascinating twist, the distinguished buyers who recently acquired actor Johnny Galecki's renowned Hollywood compound for over $11 million have an impressive Hollywood background of their own. One of the purchasers is Maha Dakhil Jackson, a highly experienced talent agent representing a plethora of A-list celebrities, including Tom Cruise, Ava DuVernay, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, and the iconic Madonna, among others.

Maha Dakhil Jackson, who holds the esteemed positions of co-head of film and board member at the renowned Creative Artists Agency (CAA), is married to fellow industry heavyweight Matt Jackson. Matt has built a remarkable career as a longstanding film producer, credited for notable projects such as "All the Old Knives," "Molly's Game," and "End of Watch." Recently, he secured a lucrative first-look deal with the esteemed global film and TV studio, Fifth Season.

Situated on an exceptional double lot within the highly sought-after Outpost Estates enclave, the Jackson estate was originally purchased by Johnny Galecki in 2015 for $9.2 million. The property boasts an illustrious lineage, having been previously owned by notable figures such as Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whitely, as well as Ben Stiller, who enlisted the services of esteemed design firm Roman and Williams to undertake an extensive restoration and expansion of the 1920s estate. Another distinguished former owner includes acclaimed actor Lou Diamond Phillips, known for his role in "La Bamba."

Secured by walls and gates, the half-acre property encompasses a two-story main house and a separate guesthouse, providing a generous total of 7,400 square feet of luxurious living space. Approached by a splendid array of tropical plantings, a staircase gracefully descends from the street to reveal the remarkable Spanish-style compound from the 1920s, boasting antique fixtures, meticulously restored terracotta tilework, and an original speakeasy pub, harkening back to a bygone era.

Impressive features of this exceptional residence include a billiard room, a chef's kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, a private movie theater, and several exquisitely adorned original fireplaces. The main house comprises three bedrooms on the upper level, with the master suite offering a private balcony, dual closets, and a lavishly appointed bathroom swathed in marble. The two-bedroom guesthouse, positioned above the two-car garage, overlooks the lush lawns, serene tree-shaded patios, an outdoor kitchen, and a resplendent mosaic-tiled pool and spa.

Interestingly, the Jacksons have owned a 1920s Spanish-style home in the esteemed Beachwood Canyon neighborhood for nearly a decade. As expected, this remarkable residence has just been listed for sale with an asking price of $5 million. Meanwhile, Johnny Galecki has recently relocated from Los Angeles to Nashville, where reports suggest he has acquired a newly-purchased ranch on the outskirts of Music City.
